Taste David and Lily comes in many forms from what we eat through what we listen to and even what we wear plus our manners. Never wore Jeans in my life, think this need to wear cut off below the knee trousers mad also. Picking my Daughters up from Night Clubs wondered why young women went out half dressed no coat no handbag in the middle of winter, but it is what they did. Taught at school good taste meant standing if a lady came in the room, giving up your seat on transport, opening doors for them now often gets a retort using the sort of language I had no idea ladies knew and which I never even used in the army as a Drill Sergeant.
Musical taste is what we are brought up with and I had a classical Dad and musical's Mother. Entertainment was round the piano after Sunday tea and all the family singing the latest songs from the films or such as "Come into the garden Maud" "Roses are blooming in Picardie" plus Roll out the barrel and such wartime songs, it was full blast with favourite Hymns in the compulsory Church going. We raised our voices, take the mikes away and half those people you mention would be gone.
So Lily and David I like what I like, you are free to like what you wish although Cliff along with Boy Bands and the Spice girls types I would quite happily drown.
